The gemstone and diamond industry in India provides thousands of jobs and brings in a lot of foreign exchange each year. Places like Surat, Mumbai and Jaipur are international hubs for the gemstone and diamond trade. But, the industry is perpetually troubled by lack of trained manpower, which is required to meet international and domestic demand.
To fill this gap, Mr. Navrattan Kothari, chairman, KGK Group set up the Diamond Training Institute in 1988 which has been recently uplifted to Diamond and Color Gemstone (DCG) Training Institute. There are a number of well structured courses that the institute offers to youngsters who want to make a career in the gemstone and diamond industry. From the time of inception the institute has trained 3000 students and have made them experts in the field of coloured gems and diamonds. One of its most respected courses across the industry is the Diamond Grading and Manufacturing course, which opens up a lot of avenues for aspiring candidates.
KGK’s vision is to give the industry and the students an institute that helps fulfil their needs. Through the well structured courses at DCGTI KGK is aiming to give the industry a place to find good talent and give the next generation good grounding in the gemstone and diamond trade. The institute has the best faculty and infrastructure in the field to impart good training to its students. The institute benefits greatly from the KGK Group’s years of global expertise in the gemstone and diamond trade.
